A KIND-HEARTED cyclist has completed a 1,000 mile bike ride in aid of Parkinson's UK.

Gary Kay from Whalley, cycled 100 miles a day for ten days straight in order to raise money for the charity in memory of his mother-in-law, Gwyneth.

Taking on the challenge between June 21 and 30, not only did Mr Kay cycle more than the length from John O'Groats to Lands End, but he also climbed a total of 50,000 feet.

On the final day of his challenge, he was joined by more than 30 people for the last 100 miles, 19 of which were his friends and colleagues from his place of work, H&T Presspart Blackburn.

His wife, Rachel, also got in the saddle to cycle along with him.

Mr Kay's mother-in-law lived with Parkinsons's disease, a neurological condition, for many years.

And he and his team have so far managed to raise more than £8,000 for Parkinson's UK in order to help them find better treatments and a cure.
